^ i do. i think the obp sports grille looks better than the color matched sports-grille or 09+ grilles on most non-obp colored 3gwrx's. but this one... looks kind of blank to me without the subaru emblem. i think the 09+ grille would flow better with his setup. imho.

Grille has a big gap in the middle. Maybe a lip would help too.

Always loved your car!

Are you happy you did the wide-body conversion now that its complete? Worth the money/ efforts?

Thanks I love it also.

So far so good but I haven't even gotten to drive it yet .
Pulle the turbo setup and sold and waiting on my extreme turbo system rotated kit and new ark catback .

I have gained 3" in the wheel well department or more .
My fronts have zero camber maybe even plus I need to lower and get a alignment .

So far look wise paints 100% better and looks awsome so much wider .

Money to sell and buy was cheaper then starting from scratch and having motor swapping and part switching .

So worth it so far so good it's a new car again .

First full one in north America .

Zero sports has there car in Japan that was made also but used the narrow modded bumper in the rear . They used there front .

Was way more work then expected wouldn't do it again but I got the metal


Yes sir the off set is the biggest reason now the car isn't aggressive anymore I need to get lower offset .
I didn't think there was 3" more wheel well to have but there is .

IIRC the hubs on the narrow body are a little closer in then a factory widebody, so you'd need even more (less) offset on your wheels to get the same effect as a factory widebody.

Looks great though man.

Thanks guys .
I loved my car narrow but the wide flairs had me and I wasn't about to give up my car so I built one .

Ya well my front with 5mm and zero camber actually + camber is 5mm to 10 mm in the wheel well.

The rear is 20mm with a bit of - camber so ya a bit more wheel well I think 3" over stock .

I knew I would be needing the more offset but with the extra I had thought I had enough .
Well guess again .
I ordered 15mm for the rear to start and then got a offer on my rims and found a set of white xd9 now waiting on a deposit so I can in return buy the xd9 and not have two sets of rims .


As funny as it sounds I now have more rear wheel well it seems then expected :|

I think 1.5 in the track difference but the rim setup is also different .

It's enough to make my grids fit like stock on the rear .
